Snug and friendly cafe restaurant where mussels are high on the menu. One of the only true Walloon / Flemish multi-cultural restaurants, right on the linguistic border. The small shopfront hides a large restaurant that stretches from the wooden panel interior at the front, through...More

Not only is the setting nice and themed (+points for the menus hidden in comic books), but the food is delicious and the menu extensive! I definitely recommend going there to get a taste of Belgium!

69 types of mussel preparations await you here. I had basic mussels and they were tasty - plump and properly cooked. Croquettes were also tasty. A little expensive but worth it.

This is a little off the beaten path but more typical than the more touristic restaurants in the center of the city. Indeed you see many local customers but already multiple languages are spoken here!! I go for the classics again: mussels with white wine,...More

This intimate restaurant specialising in Belgian/Brussels fare is located quite a bit away from the tourist areas, which is not a bad thing - it is worth a "detour". I had the mussels, a dish the are proud of - there are an amazing amount...More
